dayton, brand new / by Ashley Brown

Sweet Dayton is the kind of newborn that photographers dream of... sleepy and laid back, with chubby cheeks to work. He was a doll to work with, and I'm so glad I got to meet him and his parents and photograph them during this fleeting stage. I love when the "first baby" is incorporated... they usually are hesitant to give up their spotlight!

I am a big fan of pure, white simplicity when photographing newborns, but love adding in something fun and adorable... like this bear hat mom had on hand.

Dayton is an absolute joy... enjoy every minute with him!
